Our fire awareness / extinguisher training course is designed for all staff and particularly those with fire safety responsibilities (excluding Fire Marshals / Wardens) who may need to correctly and safely operate fire extinguishers and other firefighting equipment. They are designed to ensure that should a fire alarm activate, or a fire start, your employees will have the confidence, knowledge and skills to deal with it appropriately and safely.

For our practical sessions we use gas fire simulators which are clean burning and will not damage the floor surface nor will they cause a smoke problem to either your premises or the surrounding area / neighbouring premises, ensuring that the live firefighting demonstrations are held in a controlled environment. The benefits of practical fire extinguisher training cannot be underestimated as the confidence gained from our instructors will produce infinite results, ranging from giving assistance to firefighting professionals to nipping a small fire in the bud before it spreads or develops.
